  2. My 1983 model. Square front axle like the 5488. Around 8600 hours. Mainly does planting and some tillage work in the fall. It has the 3LM466 Schwitzer turbo on it so a bit loud compared to the 5488 with a TO4.

  3. Any room for a new owner operator hauling in and out of the Booger Creek Gin? Little man got a new truck yesterday at a toy show so Dad decided he needed one also for a few dollars out of the used toy basket at a booth. I can’t leave anything alone so I took it all apart and painted it. Everything was white to begin with. I need to find a trailer for it now I guess....

  6. Finished corn planting last night. Started last week and we planted with up to three planters when we didn't have a breakdown. Had 2" of rain Tuesday night just before evening. Was planting Thursday again. George hauled the fertilizer for us with the 7240 in the homemade nurse tank . Case IH 1200PT 12 row and a pair of 955 six rows one that we bought new in '97 and it was planting 100 acres per row for close to a decade or so. Third picture shows the cable and pipe row markers we have made to hang over the last row planted . One of the pictures of the half link bag I grabbed out of the shop . Must have been nos . Probably 15% of the ground was unharvested rye or wheat that was up to 7' tall I told the pastor this morning to not be offended if I fell asleep during the sermon as I had a really long week . Won't be long a break as many other things to get done My acre count

  8. You can remove all the windows and doors on the year-a-round cab can't you? That beats a lot of other brands, for summer use. Still a great story!?

  10. TwoStep----- Keep that Lone Star camper trailer locked down tight------I see the cartel is back in action. (stole 2 semi loads of ammunition----see thread started by Acem) Don't reckon it would hold many people (maybe 37--39?)--------but would just about be ideal size and shape for smuggling 1 large watermelon!!??

  11. TwoStep---- Tell the boys out at Booger Creek Gin that they would do well in picking up Hammer & Son as a gin client. They are one of the largest cotton growers in the Mid-West. Good folks------I have furnished them their cotton seed in years past. They were working small acreage back then------but I am sure have expanded lots by now. ?? DD

  12. I have YAR cabs on the 966, 784, one 656, a Hinson on the 1456, and a Hiniker on the White 2-105 that I sold. Simple matter to take the doors off for summer use, and earmuffs are relatively inexpensive. Every tractor has a dedicated set that stays with the tractor. And the cabs sure beat baking in the hot sun, or freezing in a 15* snowstorm.

  17. the main reasons I bought my 5288 were 1)to get a model from that series to have at least one tractor from every series IHC built, and 2) a cab with air conditioning. The A/C has since left town. Mainly used for chopping, and it planted corn the year the 1456 was laid up. This year, it has the duals on and is hooked to the disk.

  18. Several years ago I was driving my buddies 69 Dart to the race track for him. I stopped at the crossing station and the gal asked where I was going. Obvious to anyone else that the car was going to the drags. She would not let me enter Canada because I did not have a written note from the owner saying it was OK for me to do that. I called the car owner and waited for him, when he got there with paperwork 1/2 hour later I drove the car to the next station away from the gal that turned me around. The guy at that station asked if I was going to the drags, (did not ask for any paperwork) then asked how quick the car was and waved me through saying "Have fun, hope you win!! Some agents have a better attitude than others.

  21. This week the International 5288 is our tractor of choice. I know quite a few of these work horses around the country. I am a little partial to these ole girls as we have one on our farm. I think the 88 series were probably the most refined looking tractors ever made. So let's see some 5288's y'all. Here are some pictures of ours.

  22. I have some corn with grass of some type in the end rows that's being a pain to control. I believe it's foxtail of some type. Not woolly cupgrass, that's easy to identify. This is conventional corn. I put down 2.5 pints Surpass (equivalent generic) before planting. 2 weeks ago used Callisto and Aatrex and a week ago I sprayed it with a full rate of Accent. It doesn't seem to phase it. So I drug out the 53 6 row double leaf spring cultivator and will rip it out next week sometime. I bet it's been close to 7 or 8 years since I had this cultivator on anything. I bought it on a consignment sale maybe 20 years ago for $75. It even has a set of rolling shields for it. I have a Wil Rich 6 row as well but I can lift this IH higher off the ground. I have high lift 2 to 3 point arms and the pins are mounted in what used to be prong type fast hitch mounts. Previous owner torched them off. I have a set of the factory mounts but haven't got them installed yet. I talked to an agronomist I get chemicals from and he said he's had a lot of complaints this year about chemicals not working because of the hot dry weather. I've seen people cultivating that haven't done it in years. The last good rain we've had here was May 26 with .9". Had .1 yesterday. I don't know what this corn is living on to be honest with every day in the 90's. I planted my first corn May 1 and it's just over knee high. The soybeans are not growing much at all. I had to spray some post today (also conventional) with Flexstar and Firstrate because the weeds were getting taller than the soybeans. Just more stress on the plant. I wanted to replace some sweeps on this cultivator a few years ago but was told they have a different angle than anything else and are obsolete. Anyone have more knowledge on that?

  24. I wish I had taken photos. Down along the border south of Ft. Huachuca is a series of watering troughs made from large earthmoving tires. They had been split down the middle of the tread, laid down and the center filled with concrete with the fill pipe and float coming up thru the middle. Rust proof, bullet proof, only maintenance needed is the float valve. They'll be there a hundred years from now.

  26. You'd be more than welcome to come down and haul cotton to a warehouse or haul cottonseed to a oil mill. Booger Creek Gin is also looking for new customers no matter how far away they might be. Just last year we contracted for all of the cotton crop on Tony Ramos Farms Inc. out in California. And we have a luxurious mobile home we furnish to all contract haulers while they're here.

  27. Just tell them you identify as whatever it is that gets you 125% back. Look at the politicians who identify as an Indian, excuse me, Native American, or the white woman calling herself a black woman. Lest we forget the thing in charge at health and human services calling itself a human when we all know that isn’t possible. You get to decide what you want to be today! My only thought is why can’t we “poor folk” identify as wealthy and use these politicians spending privileges as our own…??

  30. good weekend for finishing. I notilled my last 8 acres of field corn on Sunday, too. I took first cutting round bales off the field Friday and Saturday. First time that field has been corn in about 20 years. Still have a 10 acre seeding and a little sweet corn to plant, plus a bunch of first cutting to round bale.

  31. As far as "moisture not lacking " same here. Roughly a month or so ago we were dry. Was kinda scary for early spring and snow this winter was below normal. But now rain,rain rain.My grass hay which goes south for horses mainly is no kidding bout chest high. It pays to put fertilizer on it and spray for weeds for sure.Now just need some of those 90 degree days with a 10,15 mph breeze. Sooner or later we will get them. But I will never wish the rain away, without it nothing grows,life is bleak, worrisome and stressful.

  33. That is correct. They just slide out of the hinge. When we put ours on the 1256 it was ordered with ac. Didn’t really work that well from day 1. Dad worked on it and we even had a couple different people look at it trying to get it to work. Finally gave up on it and the doors and windows came off for summer work and back on for fall and winter work.

  34. I never did this with a Massey but I start this way with compressor replacement. The dryer is being replaced anyway or you have no warranty. Never trust how much oil is in the new compressor. Take the plug out of the side in your case, drain and measure the oil while rotating the clutch back and forth. Oil amount required changes with application but an A6 system normally takes about 12 ounces. You can put it all in that plug on the side and install the compressor. Now how much oil is in the rest of the system? It needs to all be flushed out. I prefer to flush in the opposite direction of normal flow. Do the lines and condenser Then the evaporator. It is slow going through the expansion valve if you do not replace it. A little pressure and release. Repeat about 10 or 20 times. There are some A/C flush products, normally expensive, but I normally use denatured alcohol. It is inexpensive and works well. No smoking and or inhaling. 4 ounces at a shot. Repeat if it did not clear at the end. Use new oil as yours is possibly two different types already. Sounds like your expansion valve is doing OK from your pressures. Freon amounts are out the window going from R12 to 134. Make sure your condenser, radiator and in between is clean. Good idea to clean the condenser even if it looks good. Open the cab doors and put it on fresh air. Thermometer in the vent at about 1200 RPM. Probably start with 2 cans. Then add about a half can at a time and let it run for 5 minutes. Keep adding freon until the temperature drops no more. If your pressures stay inline, safe, you should be OK. Is it possible you have pulley grooves for 15, 17, and or 22 series belts and need a different width belt?

  38. We mowed the last two days pulling a 12' mower. The 806 ran great. As stated in a prior post, the fast hitch isn't working properly. We don't want to change things, just repair those items and do it properly. Now that the mowing is done we can start working on them following the advice we were given. here is the 806 at work. Chris

  41. A few from years ago.............Mowed hay with it the other day, but didn't get any pictures. Sure wish I would have bought the 5288 MFD that was on the lot with this one, but never was around a 5*88 and wasn't sure if it would be a hit or not, ended up being my favorite or second favorite tractor here.

  44. Completely different. The 284 wasn't even manufactured by IH. Let's see if I get this right: The 284 is a Komatsu. The 384 is based off the Bradford models (i.e. B250/B275/B414). The Hydro 84, along with the 484-up are on the Doncaster platform.
